The reason why I'm updating is because LiveJournal is a relic of days gone by when everyone used to post sometimes more than once a day and we all had some kind of discernment of how each other felt at a given moment in time. LiveJournal was killed by MySpace which seems to have been gazumped by Facebook, which just seems opaque.
Rather than having a large text box to input your thoughts and feelings and attempt to be poignant and poetic Facebook favours a single line in which a large percentage of people seem to complain.
I'll be honest, I'm only updating so they don't delete my LJ.
P.S. I learnt loads of words off the mood selection in LJ so it was a part of my education. Please comment, I'd love to know if my friends are still using LJ. Anyone up for starting a 'use LJ' campaign on Facebook?
